Remember the classic 1980s TV show Knight Rider? One of the signature stunts from the show was when Michael Knight, played by David Hasselhoff, would drive his car, KITT, into the back of a tractor trailer while both vehicles were moving.
But is this Knight Rider stunt even possible in real life? Can you actually approach a ramp hanging off a Big Rig while in motion and drive into it? The guys from Mythbusters decided to put this Knight Rider stunt to the test in their “Big Rig” episode. The result is the YouTube clip above.
